No, you can make these for pennies with the socks you already own, some rubber granules (cheese grate a tyre) and bargue glue or other shoe cement and a pair of socks (wool is cool, synthetic will dry faster but smell, cotton is low tier, liner socks are least durable but thinnest)

Pro tip: don’t have a heavy pack with these, it’ll fuck you up if you don’t religiously walk forefoot first
Extra pro tip: cut some car windshield reflector into insoles for cold ground

Is this a thing this year? For those that don't know, the people of /out/ bought items for each other that were mostly on people's amazon wish lists. It may only be October right now, but many people who wanted to do it last time said they didn't know in enough advance to be able to move funds around.

I just figured I'd make a thread to remind people. Discuss, ask questions, make comments, reminisce about Secret Santa events of the past, etc.

It's advisable that you load your list up with sub-$10 items, so anons can not only afford to get you stuff but hopefully get an item for a couple different anons. It makes it more fun that way. It's possible someone might spend $30 on you but put some cheap items in as well so anons who want to participate can even if they don't have much to spend. Basically Coghlan's those lists up.

>Basically Coghlan's those lists up.

Coghlan mylar emergency blankets for everyone!! Their pocket saws look intriguing, but the reviews are a bit lackluster. Then again some people are really hard on their gear .*stares at the batonny group*

Surprisingly, Coghlan's stuff is not the cheapest. The local store's emergency blankets are over $3 not while the off-brand stuff is like $1.10. Yet, at Walmart they are nearly $4 and Rural King $1.99. On Amazon, everything that reads "$3.xx" ends up being $4-$6 when you actually click on the link to see the listing. The cheapest is a bulk order of 12 emergency blankets of off-brand for $15.99 ($1.33 each.) Which is as much as the aluminum, "Coghlan's Two Burner Non-Stick Camp Griddle, 16.5 x 10-Inches" lol

>Lightning trout

The gold-orange rainbow trout raised under artificial fish culture conditions and is stocked as a novelty for angling sport. The golden rainbow was developed from one fish, a single female trout with a genetic mutation that gave her a mixed golden and normal rainbow trout coloration. She was found in the West Virginia hatchery system in 1954. Through selective breeding with regularly marked rainbow trout, an all-gold, golden rainbow trout was developed. In 1963, this fish strain was popularized as the “West Virginia Centennial Golden Trout.” Pennsylvania and other states hybridized the pure strain of West Virginia golden trout with normal rainbows and produced palomino trout, which were true genetic palominos. Palomino trout were first stocked in Pennsylvania in 1967. Since then, the genetic strain in Pennsylvania has weakened, but in recent years the hybrid was selectively bred back closer to the stronger, better-colored golden rainbow trout. Although palominos were stocked as both average-sized and large trout, today’s golden rainbow is raised only to trophy size for anglers and stocked throughout the state. In fish hatcheries, the rainbow trout has occasionally produced other unusual genetic mutations, such as the blue rainbow trout, whose body color is sky-blue.Identification: Golden rainbows are a deep golden-yellow in body color, with pinkish lower fins, pink or red tones on their cheeks and with the rainbow’s reddish lateral stripe. There is no spotting on the body or fins. The Pennsylvania record golden rainbow trout is over 11 pounds.
Life history: The golden rainbow is reared in fish culture stations. Spawning in the wild is unlikely, because golden rainbows are highly visible in streams both to anglers and predators like blue herons and ospreys. Golden rainbows and palomino rainbows grow larger and faster than regular rainbows. They have “hybrid vigor,” a trait often seen in mixed race children.

Putting a feeler out there -
Any of you interested in meeting up for a weekend camp/hike in one of the eastern national forests?
I'm planning on car-camping in either Allegheny, Monongahela, or Wayne National Forest sometime this fall.
Dispersed camping is awesome, and if any of you guys wanna tent you have the capability as well.

He starved to death. At the very end of starving to death, anything you eat doesn't matter, because you are dying. That's where he was. There's no way he'd have made it past a certain point without hospitalization regardless of what he had to eat. In fact, eating too much of anything at that point can kill you right out. By too much, I mean just a normal ordinary meal. Because improperly refeeding after fasting is deadly.

I have no clue what you are talking about. I've had chickens in my orchard for over 10 years. About 20 different breeds over that time. There's several types of fruit trees, blackberries, raspberries, currents, black nightshade, ground cherry, etc. Only the ducks cause problems with tree roots when they muck about in the rain and make some divets, but it isn't much and not enough to harm anything. The chickens eat all the fallen fruit.

I keep mine out on a plate for a few weeks sometimes. When there hasn't been rain for several days and the humidity is really low I'll put them into paper envelopes and mason jars. I can vacuum pack the mason jars. The key to storage is keeping the moisture level low so they don't rot and keeping insects and mice from getting to them. Seeds from pumpkins, squash, watermelon, etc take the longest to dry out. There's a certain feel to them that lets me know they are totally bone dry. Like if they feel the slightest bit cool then they are too wet. They also are very light when dry and kind of tinkle in sound when compared to non-dry seeds. Acorn squash seeds are the same way. It can take several weeks to dry out properly.

Is the city life a literal slave life?

I've been living in a medium sized city for a while now and the thing that hits me the most is how little people here actually do all days and few seem to have real hobbies.

They go to work and after work they go to a sterile gym for an hour, sit by the TV, computer or smartphone in their apartment. They like to claim they love to visit restaurants, bars etc. but it's only a few hours a week in total.

I guess this will be a general thread where we whine about cities and discuss differences

If you're big into art and other people culture, as well as being on top of the latest w/e cities are for you. If you enjoy activities that require space and like things laid back and not much going on, countryside is probably for you. Honestly a balance of both is best, scratch both itches.

>I don't like people in my business and that's generally how small towns are from what I've experienced. I'm not a cunt, I just like privacy so I don't need me telling you a small detail of my life to reach everyone else mmk?
This. I love the anonymity in cities. Good to see so many faces that'll never get to know each other but still happily share the social responsibility of being productive members of society, most of them anyway. And you can go months and years without ever speaking to your neighbors beyond a nod or a hello in the hallway.
In the villages I always feel I'm being observed from behind peoples' curtains at all times of the day. Not because village folk are weird or evil or something, but because they not only seek a tightly knit community, but rely on it. Even cities are better places for being left alone than villages. The only places where you'll get even more privacy is in the middle of nowhere with no neighbors at all.
